The three-time African champions started their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign with a routine home win over their West African rivals
Fans have reacted to Nigeria’s 2-0 win over Liberia in their opening match of the 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign.
A first-half brace from Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho helped Gernot Rohr’s men to a comfortable win over their West African rivals.
The Foxes star put Nigeria in front in the 23rd minute with a low left-footed effort from the edge of the box following a ball from Alex Iwobi.
Iheanacho scored his and Nigeria’s second two minutes before the break, tapping home from close range following another combination with Iwobi.
The Super Eagles could not add to their tally after the break, although they came close through Victor Osimhen and Alex Iwobi.
But despite the win, fans were not satisfied, especially with the state of the pitch and the television coverage of the match.
The fans took to social media to criticise the pitch conditions, although they also reserved praises for the man of the match, Iheanacho.
Here are some reactions from the fans.
The Super Eagles next match in the qualifiers is an away clash at Cape Verde on Tuesday, but they will be without their UK stars.
